NYC Budget Includes $40 million for 2020 Census

Mayor deBlasio and Speaker Corey Johnson agreed to add $14 million to the city’s  budget from the Mayor’s original proposal of $22 million. The city had already approved $4 million last year, bringing the new total to $40 million for census outreach, staffing, publicity and other purposes. Council Members Carlos Menchaca and Carlina Rivera, chairs of the council’s Census Task Force, helped develop the proposal to increase spending with the assistance of New York Counts 2020 and other advocates.

While New York State has appropriated $20 million for the census, no spending allocations have been announced.
